Fair Indigo Introduces Fair Trade Organic Denim
For its fall collection, Fair Indigo is introducing a line of fair-trade, organic cotton denim togs in four different styles: a stretch blazer and a seamed skirt, along with Authentic Fit and Slim Fit jeans. (Prices start at $69.)
The company, which was formed by four former Lands' End execs, says all its pieces are manufactured in a fair-trade factory in San Jose, Costa Rica, using 100 percent organic cotton grown in the United States and woven in North Carolina. "Customers loved our jeans last fall. Being able to provide the same great fit while taking better care of our planet just seemed like the right thing to do," says Elizabeth Ragone a Fair Indigo co-founder and the firm's style director, in a press release,. "We believe so strongly in this that our entire denim collection this fall is not just fair trade, but also organic."
For a company that has built its platform entirely on worker rights, we'd say it was about time. ::Fair Indigo
